ELL program is intended to support students learning to use English to express themselves. All students should attain foundational skills, particularly in grammar, spelling and basic pronunciation. They learn to use English in everyday situations and for functional purposes, such as giving directions, information or instructions and making requests.

The ELL program and staff work towards designing effective instruction to ensure that all ELL students can access academic content. There are four proficiency levels (beginning/advanced beginning, intermediate, advanced, transitional) in each of the four language domains (Listening, Speaking, Reading, Writing). A fifth domain, Comprehension, is embedded within the domains of Listening and Reading and is part of the Washington English Language Proficiency Assessment (WELPA).
